Safety precautions W

Read this manual and the safety precautions carefully before use. Explain their contents to your children, and the potential hazards associated with using the telephone. Only use the mains unit supplied.
Do not install the phone in a bathroom or shower room as the handset and base are not splash-proof. (page 7) Do not use the telephone in environments subject to explosion hazard (e.g. auto paint shops).
If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make sure you also give them the operating manual.
Fit only the approved rechargeable battery pack! Never use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery pack as this could damage your health and cause injury. Use the battery pack as directed in this manual (page 7). The operation of medical appliances may be affected. Be aware of the technical conditions within the particular environment (e.g. doctor's practice). The handset may cause an intrusive 'hum' in hearing aids. Do not hold the handset against your ear while it is ringing (incoming call).
All electrical and electronic products should be disposed of separately from the municipal waste stream via designated collection facilities appointed by the government or the local authorities. This crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on the product means the product is covered by the European Directive 2002/96/EC. The correct disposal and separate collection of your old appliance will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health. It is a precondition for reuse and recycling of used electrical and electronic equipment. For more detailed information about disposal of your old appliance, please contact your city office, waste disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product.
Do not pollute the environment. Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad lock (page 3) is activated! Not all of the functions described in this manual are available in all countries.
Place the cover on the battery compartment as shown in the diagram, then push it up until it snaps into position.
Setting up the telephone for use
Step 1: Connecting the base
Opening the battery cover
Press down on the battery cover below its upper end and slide the cover down.
Connect the phone jack with the phone cord 1 and the mains units (230 V) with the power cord 2 as shown. Place the cords in the cord recesses. The two cords must be plugged in at all times. Use only the mains unit supplied (see the bottom of the base). If you ever purchase another phone cord from a store, ensure that the phone conductors are correctly connected: 3-4 connection of the telephone conductors/EURO CTR37.
Place the battery leads in the cable guides so that the battery cover cannot catch on the leads and damage them when it is closed. Only insert the recommended rechargeable battery pack, i.e. never use a normal battery pack as this could damage your health and cause injury. Never use non-Siemens battery chargers as this could damage the battery pack. Only place the handset in the base/ charging cradle that is intended for it.
Step 2: Setting up the handset

Fitting the battery pack

Fit the plug into the socket. Insert the battery (see diagram below). Place the battery leads in the cable guides.
Step 3: Registering the handset to the base and charging the battery pack

Place your handset in the base with the display facing forwards. The handset will now register automatically to the base. For procedure see page 5.
Charging the battery pack
To charge the battery pack, leave the handset in the base for approx. ten hours. The battery pack is now fully charged. The charge status of the battery pack is correctly displayed only after uninterrupted charging/discharging. Therefore you should not interrupt the charging process. Charging is electronically controlled to prevent overcharging. The battery pack heats up during charging; this is normal and not dangerous. After a time the charge capacity of the pack will decrease for technical reasons. You must set the date and time to ensure that the times of calls are logged correctly (page 10). Your telephone is now ready to use.
